Teglia Named Pro Ambitions Rookie Of The Week
Oct. 18, 2010
AMHERST, Mass. - UMass Hockey freshman goaltender Jeff Teglia has been named the Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week, as announced by Hockey East on Monday. Teglia made 33 saves, including 19 stops in the first two periods, in the Minutemen's come-from-behind 2-2 tie at No. 10 Boston University last Saturday en route to a first-star selection for the game.
After giving up two early goals in the first period, Teglia (Bloomingdale, Ill.) responded by stopping the following 27 Boston University shots to spark the Minuteman comeback. He also was crucial in preserving the tie in the waning seconds of overtime as he stared down Matt Nieto on a breakaway with less than 20 seconds remaining in the extra frame.
The rookie netminder is 0-1-1 on the young season after making his collegiate debut on October 9 at No. 15 Minnesota in relief of Paul Dainton. Teglia is also just one of three freshman goaltenders in Hockey East, leading the rookie class in both goals against average (3.25 GAA) and save percentage (.895).
The Mass Attack will host the Terriers this Friday at 7 PM from the Mullins Center in the team's home opener.
